Empirix Releases Hammer Edge Emulation Tool

Empirix introduced a high performance realistic behavior emulation tool that network equipment manufacturers, service providers and large enterprises can use to emulate complex, unpredictable user behavior and multidimensional data traffic prior to network rollouts. The new Hammer Edge tool can emulate the realistic behavior of users, devices and network topology configurations; test realistic security scenarios; and predict user experience of data, video and voice applications, as an aggregate, in the pre-deployment phase. It emulates the behavior of users and devices required to test elements at the network edge, including border controllers, firewalls and deep packet inspection devices, as well as security and application level gateways -- in both secure and unsecure network topologies. In addition, Hammer Edge predicts the users' experience within these environments.
